Question about Seagate (ST3250824AS) 250 GB Hard Drive

ST3250824AS Drive unreadable

Hello!
I have a Seagate 250Gb hdd (ST3250824AS, P/N: 98D133-301, FW 3.AAD, date: 06293) - the drive worked fine in my old machine until the machine packed it in (motherboard) sometime in February this year. I have only just got around to building my new machine and now Computer Management is saying that the drive is unreadable.
Original machine had plenty of fans with a dedicated one for the hdd's and machine never ran hot.
The drive was originally installed as SATA-1 without the speed-limiting jumper (who knew?) and is now on SATA-2 but same result with the jumper fitted and not fitted.
Drive was formatted NTFS-Dynamic and there are no options in CM other than to convert to Basic disk (which it says will wipe everything).
Any advice would be appreciated either on how to recover the drive or to recover the data.
Thanks.

It sounds like your hard drive is messed up. Don't worry you can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

Cant load xp onto sata HDD


To use XP with a SATA drive you'd need to use the HDD disc software first as XP didn't come with preloaded SATA drivers. This is what is preventing you from installing XP on the drive. Once the driver is loaded you should have no problem. If your new hdd didn't come with a disc then you can download it from the hdd manufacturers website under the support link. Hope this helps.

PS3 hard drive transfer


seagate eSATA 250gb hard drive, the PS3 uses a laptop sata drive, how you get this to work?

You have basically have 2 options you could try:

Use Linux for retrieve the data of get the original mainboard back.

The PS3 + HDD bonds together, so if you were to save stuff eg, online purchases, you need to have the same account for max of 5 downloads to 5 differenct units, BUT you cannot just swap out the HDD and expect it to work. The PS3 has a feature to backup from internal directly to an external USB hard drive but online limited to data, most purchased movies and/or MP3 will not be transferred, it sucks.

You can have as much HDD you want but only YOU can use them , cannot be shared with another PS3. I hope that helps a bit

Windows 2000 advanced Server does not support Seagate 250 GB Hard Drive.


I am inclined to think that this would be a problem with the jumper settings limiting the size of the drive.
I can't offer anything more than that, sorry. Hope it will help a bit.

Can't open HDD drive


Hi
1. Start > Run > type in cmd then click OK to get a command prompt.
2. Type in chkdsk e: /r (replace e: with the drive letter of your external hard drive).

This won't do any harm, it will fix errors on the disk and try to recover data from bad sectors. It might not solve the problem but it's worth a try. Jyo

ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard with 250GB SATA HDD and 250GB IDE HDD Problem


Hi LP,
I’ am very familiar with ASUS motherboards. I am thinking you have posted two questions or more referring to the,
ASUS K8V-MX board. When you sign into you're FixYa account you than need to click on you're profile. Within you're profiles are the questions you have posted. Click that question to add or see the expert's answer. If you need another question (about the same item) re-post within that same question. You can even copy the link to an older post & past that link into you're next question. (Than I can read you're last question & my responce).
LP you have me all mixed up. I'll answer the question you have posted above. In the future please provide you're old post so I understand better.

There is nothing wrong with IDE 250GB drive or the SATA drive.
The problem you are haveing is setting the correct settings.

The ASUS K8V-MX can support two serial ATA SATA drives. The SATA drive's can only run at 1.0 version. 1.5GB transfer speed & not SATA II, the 3.0GB speed.

How to setup the SATA drive?
Please disconnect any other drives (IDE) & a second SATA drive that may be connected to the system. Except the CDROM drive.
Using you're manual the SATA drive should be connected to SATA1 port. Page 1-24 in you're manual.
Put you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive & boot the PC. You will see, Press any key to boot from CD... (press any key on your keyboard). Windows will start to install. Durring installation of windows the system will restart. You will again see, Press any key to boot from CD... (DO Nothing)!
Just allow windows to conintue on its own. Windows will continue to install it's self. This will happed once again, & again do nothing. Windows will finish installing it's self.
After windows has finished, load the ASUS CD into you're CD-ROM drive & install it's driver software. Restart the PC.
You must register windows. Do so.
Than update windows through windows update service. (This will take some time to complete). (Do not install service pack 3).
If you have an IDE drive 250GB in size & you installed windows on it. You must erase the drive or it will conflict with you're new installation on the SATA drive. To do this, look on the IDE drive & you will find a large white sticker. Printed on there is instructions of how to set the drive pin. Set the drive up as a slave drive. (This is only temporary).
Power off the PC & unplug the power cord. Connect the 250 IDE drive's power cable & data cable. Plug in the power cord to the PC & turn on the PC. Windows will load. Right click once on the start button & slide up to & left click on Explorer.
Find the 250 IDE drive, it should be drive letter D or E. Right click the proper drive letter & format the drive.
( Do Not format, Local_Drive C:\ ). Once the format is complete, power down the PC by clicking on the start button & click turn off the computer. Once off, unplug the power cord. Change the pin on the 250GB IDE drive to Master with a slave. Take the 40GB drive & change it's pin so the 40GB drive is a slave.
Connect the 250GB drive to the end of the IDE data cable & connect the 40GB drive to the next connector of the same IDE data cable. Re-check all power cables & data cables for good connections before closing the case. Plug the power cord in & power up the PC. Everything should run just fine.
Setting the pin for you're IDE drive's can be very confusing. Click on the link below. This will give you an idea of how to set you're pin for a master drive, master with a slave drive. If you post the name ST****** of you're two drives I can post the correct pin locations from Seagate's web site.
